The Guard and The Worker

Uploaded: June 20, 2018 21:35:39 | Entered: June 20, 2018 21:39:34


Inside our beehive. I'm guessing one is the guard, who is checking out the other worker bee, who just came in from gathering nectar. The guard bees make sure all who enter belong to the hive.
For the PG 101 "Macro in Nature" theme.

Glad to see this with an EP . . . so afraid it won't get the notice and respect it deserves if it's not looked at carefully. Wonderful shot and glimpse of the work inside a beehive. Add my "wow" and "fascinating/fascination" to everyone else's, Michele. #11716151

Michele Peterson level-classic July 25, 2018

Thanks, Nikki. I appreciate the comments and the "wow", and for picking it for the 101 favorites nomination! #11716221

Terrific detailed macro and wonderful Pov, Michelle. Sure hope to see this among the Winners. Good luck. #11716239

Terry A. Stoa July 26, 2018

Nice detail, Michele. It looks like these two are having their own little (or big to them) turf war.

Michele Peterson level-classic July 26, 2018

Thanks so much, Usman and Terry! This is definitely one of my favorites, so glad you like it. #11716304
